U-Pass has been reinstated for the 2021/2022 school year.

Students at NAIT can use their valid student I.D. to tap on/off buses and the LRT.

Students at MacEwan, Norquest and the University of Alberta can show their valid student I.D. as proof of payment until Arc cards are distributed by these three post-secondary institutions.

U-Pass programs are a group transit pass purchase that gives students enrolled in participating post-secondary institutions unlimited access to local regular transit as well as regional transit services. Through a partnership of participating transit systems, the pass is offered to students at a participating institution, as a group. 

Starting September 2021, U-Pass will be available through the Arc card, which students will use to tap on/off buses and the LRT around the Edmonton region. Arc U-Pass cards are issued by participating post-secondary institutions. NAIT students can use their One Card to tap on/off buses and the LRT.
